Yeah, we love boxers as well. Sassy is our second. Our other boxer, Gunner, is 6. He is probably laying on the couch when I took this pic. Poor Gun-gun is going gray in the face
So, I guess you know what a feat it is to get a boxer pup to sit anywhere for more than 5 seconds
. And she really sat in front of that tank for about 30 minutes, through a whole quarter of football on TV anyway. It was the darnedest thing. She was watching Betta. He would swim behind the log and she would be looking like, "where did that thing go?" Then he would come out on the other side and her little nub would start wagging.
I swear he was playing with her.
Boxers are such clowns and you've got to keep them busy or else they can get into trouble in a hurry if you aren't looking. But they are super smart as well and an learn anything if you put a little effort into training them. I started training Sassy at three months with the command-clicker-treat method. Clicker training is the best method I have ever used. Sassy mastered "come", "sit", "stay" and "down"(better command than lay since it rhymes with "stay") in two days.
Anyway, I'm glad you and your husband enjoyed the pic. BTW, all of my wife's family is from WV. They all live near Summersville. We always go through Huntington on our way there. I've spent many summers out at Summersville Lake camping, swimming and fishing. We are going there for Christmas this year.
Ok...enough rambling. If I don't make my posts shorter people will stop reading them.....Thanks for viewing Sewingalot!
